Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: There are over 900 pages of valuable information on using drugs to treat dermatological conditions in this book. The editor of this book was also the editor of a similar title 10 years ago, Systemic Drugs for Skin Diseases (W.B. Saunders, 1991). This new book is much improved. There are many helpful tables throughout, listing side effects, the types of skin diseases that one can treat with a particular drug, drug comparison tables of medications used to treat the same malady. Pricing information is also provided.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide access to accurate drug information for the clinical dermatologist. You can knowledgeably start a chemotherapy agent for the first time in a patient and feel comfortable doing so after studying the appropriate chapters. This is a multiauthored text but editor has done a good job making the writing even and consistent.
Audience: This book is written for practicing dermatologists and dermatology residents will find it useful as well.
Features: There are interesting chapters on nonsystemic agents too: sunscreen, shampoos, and alpha hydroxy products. Bonus chapters include recommendations for drugs during pregnancy and lactation and the FDA process for approving new drugs. A bibliography is included at the end of each chapter and the references are organized according to topic.
Assessment: This is a wonderful book and is on my must buy recommendation list for all dermatologists who take care of patients. It fills the gap that all general dermatology textbooks have when it comes to discussing therapy.
